Brassica oleracea

HEIRLOOM. You won’t find this beloved old Italian variety in the produce section of your supermarket, which makes it even more exciting to grow at home! Compact, 2 to 3-foot tall plants will produce a relatively small main head, which should be harvested at 3 to 4 inches diameter. Once the main head has been cut, the plants will continually produce side shoots until the weather gets too hot, or frost arrives. Note: over the many years since this variety’s introduction in 1890, the spelling of the name seems to have gotten a little confused - we’ve seen it spelled di Cicco, de Cecco, Dececco, and several versions in between.

Di Ciccio broccoli can be seeded indoors 6-8 weeks before your last frost date, and transplanted into the garden about 3 weeks before last frost. Its maturity date can vary quite a bit, but plants are usually heading at about 55 days after transplant. A fall crop can also be either direct seeded in the garden about 100 days before your first frost, or in very hot climates, started indoors in the AC and transplanted out as the days cool down. Plants prefer full sun, but can tolerate some shade, especially in hot climates. 1.75 gram packet contains about 615 seeds.
